Transcripts

Students and alums can request official and/or unofficial transcripts. The transcript request form can be used to request either type of transcript and must be submitted to the Registrar of Mercyhurst University. Unofficial transcripts do not carry the seal of the university and are free. Official transcripts bear the Mercyhurst University seal and the signature of the Registrar. A fee of $5 is charged for the issuance of each official transcript. An official transcript is ordinarily mailed directly to other institutions and agencies. Due to the embossed seal official transcripts can not be faxed. The Registrar's Office does not email transcripts. Whenever an unofficial transcript is released to a student, it bears the stamped message "Issued Directly to Student" or "Student Copy." Please allow 5-7 business days for processing after the request is received. Incomplete or illegible form may delay processing.
